Comparative Study of Vehicular Ad-Hoc Network Mobility Models and Simulators

Vehicular Networking is an emerging area of interest in the wireless networking community as well as in the transportation research community. The potential of vehicular networks to provide vital services, from real time traffic information to advance collision warning, makes this an important area of study. Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs) is defined as self-organized network which have moving vehicles and also it is considered as a sub part of Mobile Ad-hoc NETworks (MANETs). In order to test the feasibility and performance of VANET, it requires some specific networking methodology which can be checked and tested with the help of simulation. The characterization of vehicular mobility at microscopic and macroscopic level is considered as the major challenge in VANET.
